Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Peace Corps full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Independence in most situations to start programs that address community needs. Ability to live and integrate abroad.

Cons

The relationships with site organizations seem to take precedence over volunteer compatibility.

Advice to Management

Therapeutic counseling is needed for volunteers as many of the more difficult challenges are psychological. Administrators should be trained more often.

    I have been working at Peace Corps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The language training was very thorough, as was the cultural training.

    Cons

    The host country national staff was all fantastic; however, sometimes the country director and staff were not as professional. It varies so much from country to country, though, so I'm sure it's better in other places.


  2. "Volunteer"
